A loan of $650 helped to buy snacks, candy, water bottles, and plans and accessories for cell phones.


Iván's story

Ivan is applying for a new Kiva loan, because with his previous loan he was able to increase his capital, buy in larger quantities, and sell everything he bought, including snacks, candy, water bottles, and cell phone plans and accessories. With this new Kiva loan, he will purchase more of the same. He is very pleased, because the local government is going to relocate his business in a new shopping center where he can display his products in an orderly way and add new products. He sends "Many thanks to Kiva and to FMSD, because with their financial support he has made a lot of progress, both in his personal life and his business."
